Itinerary

The tour's first stop is a family-run boutique winery which has been cultivating vines for more than two thousand years. Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by an expert winemaker who will tell you about the history of the winery and guide you into its subterranean wine cellar. In this remarkable space, learn fascinating facts about grape varieties, vine growing, wine making or the optimal conditions for its storage.

It is then time to savor 4 charming wines in a stylish tasting room, accompanied by an assortment of gourmet delicatessen items. Next, visit the traditional manor house (current residence of the owner's family) and the vineyards to discover the art and secrets of winemaking. To add a glamorous touch to the experience, continue the visit through the vineyards onboard a convertible 4x4 car (approx. 40 min.) accompanied by your guide and a viticulturist, a true passionate wine expert! This is a unique and exclusive way to visit the stunning rural landscape with endless vineyards. Along the way, admire a Romanesque church settled among the vineyards and belonging to the manor.

The second cellar visited is an equally historical winery specializing in cava, a naturally sparkling wine with an unmistakable flavor deeply rooted in Catalonia. Enjoy an exclusive opportunity to enter the Capella, the heart of the cellar, the oldest part of the winery - an enchanting candle-lit ancient room where time stands still. After visiting the vineyard and cellar, taste 4 unique cavas. These are also paired by a selection of appetizers to enhance the experience.

Raise your glass for a toast to a great wine experience!
